11th January 13:52
Like so many others, we are hugely saddened by the death of David Bowie and listening to tributes on the radio has been overwhelming at times. Our studio tends to be fuelled by BBC 6 Music (bar the cricket on Radio 5), and January 10th was given to playing his music which proved to be an emotional but uplifting ride for us. We traced our lives through his songs, each one having a memory; from Bowie bedtime lullabies courtesy of Mum, having a childhood preoccupation with Major Tom's whereabouts, the sheer gobsmacking joy of listening to the Changes album for the first time, and more. It was a reflective, sharing and inspiring kind of a day. Fit for the man himself.
